Orion’s Launch Abort System proves it can survive catastrophic event

Orion’s Launch Abort System Motor Exceeds Expectations. Orbital ATK tested the LAS to 40% higher than expected temperature, shock and vibration of an expected launch emergency and the vehicle was able to perform as expected.

It’s a solid rocket engine, which makes sense (though I hadn’t really thought about it before).
